Scoop.It for SEO – A New World of Curation [Infographic] | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

For almost everyone who is a part of the online world coming up with fresh content consistently is a big challenge. Practically every guideline advises that content should be engaging, informative and relevant every single time. Consequently, content curation has taken off in a big way.

Simply put, content curation is the process of curating relevant and interesting content from various sources on the web and putting them together and publishing them on a personal site or blog. As a result of the popularity of the content curation process, a number of content marketing tools have been introduced. These tools are meant to help in the process of content marketing and SEO and facilitate the process of curation...

HOW SCOOP IT CHANGED MY SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING STRATEGY BY ACCIDENT

 

As I began this process of building my "brand" .. creating my online image and my professional presentation, I had a lot to figure out.  I created my first website, facebook and Linked In account.  I made the decision to "market" myself a Lite Feet dancer, if you read my bio it is one of the accomplishments in my life for which I am very proud.  The problem there was no single source of information of LITE FEET DANCE.   My introduction to Scoop It was perfect timing, it gave me an opportunity to create a LITE FEET SCOOP -- I had been dancing since I was 14 and I had come to know all the founders and the main Lite Feet websites, the history of Lite Feet dance,  the multitude of YouTube Channels, websites, facebook pages and Lite Feet Sound Cloud accounts, and I felt a great responsibility to curate and create the first and only LITE FEET SCOOP.  Creating this scoop gave me a link to provide as a reference to my own "LIte Feet Dancer" identity but also was a unique opportunity to curate, what I believe to be, an important, relevent and for the most part unnoticed dance phenom and YouTube Sensation that is  Lite Feet Dance.  My efforts to high lite the incredible talent of these young dancers has been an honor and I will continue to add to scoop as new content becomes available. 

DLite Scoops Lite Feet Dance:

I then created several other relevent scoops for my story, and I created them in the hopes that sharing my journey would hopefully help others with similar journeys.

Dillon Thomas's curator insight, February 1, 2:55 PM

SCOOPS --  I began using Scoop when I was defining myself a LITE FEET DANCER.  There was no single source of info about Lite Feet dance, a NYC Born Battle dance phenom and YouTube Sensation.  I created LITE FEET SCOOP TO reference for my own resume but also to provide anyone interested a link to the multitude of YOUTUBE Channels, Sound Cloud and personal sites dedicated to this unique art form and the talented dancers who participate.

Marco Bertolini's curator insight, June 22, 2013 1:10 AM

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :

 

1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.

 

2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.

 

3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

 

Un article inspirant de http://www.linkedin.com/in/emorling que vous pouvez lire ici : http://tribaling.com/blog/2013/05/15/curators-and-tribal-currency/

 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 22, 2013 2:05 PM

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.

 

Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 

 

Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.

SCOOP.IT STUDENTS | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

My students have been working hard with their curation project this semester. My students have a diverse range of career goals. They use Scoop.it to learn about their future careers.

 

This is my second year of using Scoop.it in the curriculum. Previously, i used it as a repository for great resources for students and other faculty. I am confident that teachers of diverse ages or course subjects can integrate curation to help expand the classroom walls and to teaching and applying media literacy.

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to improve your content curation efforts, Joshua Merritt has published five useful guidelines to follow.

 

These include abandoning high frequency / high-volume practices, integrating your opinion whenever possible, researching deeper, citing sources and treating curation like original content production.

 

Joshua writes: "If two different people curate and distribute the same content (which happens every day times thousands), what makes the experience of your followers more valuable?

 

The answer doesn’t have to lie in a single piece of content, but it must lie in the story arch of the greater body of work, and the more you treat each item you curate as a diamond in the rough that needs some extra cutting and polishing to be ready for your audience, the better your content will perform and the more loyalty you will drive in your followers."

 

 

Rightful. 7/10

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Is Curation the new search?  Robin Good proposes that it is.  I believe that we do trust some people more than some algorithms.  This is a very interesting article about how curation can shape education.  

Ken



Robin Good: Content curation will play a major role both in the way we "teach" and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.

 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

 

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task.

 

And it's already happening.

 

Yes, we are only at the very early stages, but, in my humble opinion, there are enough signs and indications that this is not going to be something marginal.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

Curative Thinkers and Solution Connectors

To my NMT Students,  I hope that you can see some connections between our class and what these thought leaders are discussing here.  Good luck on tomorrow's presentations!

---

Robin Good: In the age of global, collective and crowdsourced interaction, many among us are starting to play the role of "connectors". We help like-minded people find each other, or good and complementary ideas to meet halfway. 

 

Here is an interesting take from Nick Kellet on the possible different types of "connectors" out there, among which he identifies also a "solution connector", or someone able to pull together different information, resources and ideas to tell a story or to cover an issue/topic like a museum curator would do.

 

From the original article: "Are you an Solution Connector? > CURATIVE THINKER

 

...A solution connector isn't someone who create new ideas per se, being curative is just a different kind of creative.

 

They think a little more like a museum curator – they tell a story.

 

Their special skill is deciding which bits to keep and which to remove. They put together a Solution or an Exhibit. They let the whole idea tell a story. They assemble.

 

...Another metaphor is standing on the shoulders of giants. I watched this done brilliantly by Dave Kellogg whilst at Business Objects. Dave is a master of assembling ideas from across the gene pool and then crafting a wonderful story.


For me I’ve learned that Curation is far more effective and far more scalable than Creative Thinking.

 

...Curation Thinking is on the rise."
